  • Welcome to Milestone 5: Prompt, pretty and popular. Focus is on bug fixes, performance optimizations and visual completeness.
  • Please nominate all bugs that you think should block the release using the blocking-basecamp? flag in Bugzilla, and the blockingBasecamp? label in Github.
  • Triage: Daily! https://etherpad.mozilla.org/b2g-triage-plan
  • ESTIMATION: We'll be going over blockers and estimated with S/M/L.
    • Format: [LOE:SIZE]. Please fill this in white board field.
    • where SIZE is:
      • S - small. task is 1 week or less.
      • M - medium. task is up to 3 weeks.
      • L - large. task will take more than 3 weeks.



RELEASE PLAN (WIP): http://mzl.la/TDjx55

    • This week:
      • Update from Julie Choi/Michael Treese suggests there is some progress on selecting and procuring devices for dogfooding
      • Reminder that branching to esr17 isn't until 11/19 so b2g dev can continue rapid work (with minimal steps of aurora/beta approval for b2g-only gecko patches) for two more release cycles
    • Last week:
  • Developer Documentation (sheppy)
    • This week:
      • Docs work is resuming at last after our successful Kuma launch and our MDN team meeting last week.
      • Planning to work on low-hanging fruit this week, then debug guide next week.
      • Info needed:
        • What APIs are stable and ready to document? This is not clear at this time. We don't have the writing bandwidth to work on documenting anything that's not stable at this point, so please let us know what's really ready to document!
        • What are the permissions needed for each API?
      • Lack of a way to try out APIs and code snippets is making docs hard to produce.
    • As always:
    • Don't forget to add the dev-doc-needed keyword to any bugs that even might affect developer docs (whether device integration developers, Gecko developers, or web developers). You don't have to wait until the bug is fixed. We have tools to track this, and using it will get things done faster.
  • On Github, use devDocNeeded label (current open issues: http://j.mp/NTBybM )
    • For example, make sure everything API-related you talk about in these meetings have the keyword.
  • <Release Engineering> (Joduinn)
    • This week:
      • focusing on setting up two sets of builds, with updates
      • "tip" (not calling nightly/daily - implication of 24hour cadence)
      • "stable" (not calling weekly - implication of 7 day cadence)
      • meetings w/RelMgmt, B2G, ateam, l10n and IT
      • to give context, agal wants tip of tree development on github, and releases ship on hg.m.o
      • contractual details of how-to-do-updates
      • l10n for b2g
      • work w/jgriffin about emulator builds
      • work w/marshall_law about signing of b2g updates (see "automatic updates" below)
    • Last week:
      • slowprogress on contractual details of how-to-do-updates
      • meetings w/l10n about design + setup work on two-sets-of-builds-with-updates and l10n
